to discuss the fiscal cliff negotiations, from inside, the house democratic perspective, chris van hollen, ranking member of the house budget committee and someone who served on the super committee. we've not completely depressed you about what you face, you know what you face. you've been in talks that have reds during the campaign. i would argue there was nothing specific other than hints from either mitt romney or president obama during the campaign that would tell people exactly how they were going to deal with these cuts and what they were going to do and how to approach entitlements. you can argue they don't have a mandate to deal with this. how do you approach the fiscal cliff in. >> well, of course the fiscal cliff has two pieces. one the across the board meat ax sequester cuts which everybody agrees are a bad way to cut the deficit. and i do believe we'll find a way to buy down those cuts, find alternative ways to save money for a temporary period while we negotiate other things. now, on the tax part of the fiscal cliff, i would argue strongly that that was a major part of the ca
cliff. the talks. joining me now to discuss the congressional leaders meeting is chris van hollen, ranking democratic, ranking members of the house budget committee. thanks for waiting while we talked about all of this that is happening in washington. >> a lot going on, indeed. >> the real story. of course that is going to face every american is whether our taxes go up, whether huge spending cuts take place and whether this will precipitate potentially another recession. i do have the feeling from what -- do you have the feeling from what you've heard from the speaker there is a solution and he will be able to garner enough votes on the republican side of the caucus and you on the democrat to try to avert this? the house is where the action is. >> they had a constructive meeting at the white house. the president and the top four congressional leaders, republicans and democrats. there was a spirit of cooperation today. the challenge is ahead because while everyone is committed to working to avoid going over the fiscal cliff for the reasons you just mentioned, obviously the devil is
along? we'll ask senator olympia snowe, fed up with the gridlock, and congressman chris van hollen stuck in the middle of it. >>> the blame game begin. mitt romney closes down headquarters. republicans wringing hands over what went wrong. >> don't tell me the republican party doesn't have outreach, we do. but what are we supposed to do now? are we supposed to, in order to get the hispanic and/or latino vote, did that mean open boarders and embrace the illegals? if we're not getting the female vote do we become pro-choice? do we start passing out birth control pills? >> where does the party go from here? we'll talk to virginia governor bob macdonald. plus other ballot issues, big victories for same-sex marriage and the fight to legalize marijuana. and late night gets the last laugh now that the election's over. >> well, it's over. and as usual, the guy from kenya won. >> president obama did well with women beating romney by 11 binders. >> florida tonight remains too close to call. so where's the good news, you say? here it is. the election was decided without them. >> you don't listen to
on congress to make a deal. joining me now, chris van hollen and also a member of the house budget committee, congressman, good morning to you, sir. >> good morning, craig. great to be with you. >> the national journal reporting that the president could hold events related to the cliff this week. what are you hearing? >> well, i think that's right. i don't think anything has been settled. there have been on going conversations, but obviously the discussion will heat up this week now that the thanksgiving is behind us. >> what does the white house hope to accomplish with these types of events? >> well, look, this was not a side issue in the campaign. throughout the last presidential campaign the president made very clear that his number one focus was jobs and the economy and also having a long-term plan to reduce the deficit in a balanced way and that means in addition to cuts you would also have revenue, revenue that you get by asking higher income earners to pay a little bit more to reduce the deficit and so the president was really clear in the campaign and i think it is really important t
in the game for the good of the country. joining me now is chris van hollen, democrat from maryland. he was in the democratic leadership meeting with secretary geithner this meeting. congressman, thank you for your time tonight. >> reverend, good to be with you. >> congressman, you were in the meeting on the hill today. the white house wants $1.6 trillion in tax increase, 50 billion in economic stimulus and new power for the president to raise the debt limit without congressional approval. what can you tell us about that? >> well, first of all, secretary geithner on behalf of the president had two meetings on the house side. one with the republican leaders and one with democratic leaders. you're right, secretary geithner laid out key provisions. many of these are in the president's budget. if the republicans look carefully at the budget, it has called for a jobs plan that includes $50 billion of investment and that's part of a plan that would also immediately extend tax cuts to 98% of the people. the president has said we need $1.6 trillion in revenue as part of a long-term deficit redu
